kSA 400 LITE - Product Specifications
RHEED (Reflection High-Energy Electron Diffraction) is a powerful surface diagnostic technique, offering a
wealth of valuable information. The kSA 400 LITE system makes RHEED easy. The kSA 400 LITE system is
a scaled down version of its big brother, the kSA 400. kSA 400 LITE offers the essentials of RHEED analysis,
and is easily upgradeable to the full power of the kSA 400.
Designed for convenience, kSA 400 LITE gives you quantitative results out-of-the-box. All hardware
interfacing is taken care of, and acquisition and analysis is visually driven, resulting in simple, straightforward
user operation. Extensive input from our world-wide customer base has made our kSA 400 and kSA 400 LITE
the industry’s most powerful analytical RHEED system - the benchmark, against which all other systems are
measured.

kSA 400 LITE - Product Specifications
1) HARDWARE
All kSA 400 systems are supplied as a turn key unit, ready to run out-of-the-box. The kSA 400 LITE system can be supplied
with either a 12-bit Firewire or true 12-bit detector. Both detectors yield 4096 intensity levels. The Firewire detector option
(K30FW) utilizes Firewire technology for data transfer, while the true 12-bit detector (K200D) provides better signal-tonoise ratios and uses a dedicated Ethernet-based digital framegrabber. Specifications are listed below.
Detector* - 12-bit Firewire Option (K30FW)
Progressive scan, interline-transfer, 30 fps (12-bit mode), or 60fps
(8-bit mode), IEEE-1394 CCD camera with Firewire adapter card.
